Next weekend is my parent's 50th Anniversary.  I've been working all week on these favors for their Golden Anniversary Party.  I finally finished them today.  When I made the sample I was thinking that they were pretty easy and could easily make many of them.  And they are if making one or two for a gift, etc.  However, when making them in mass, I would leave the flowers off.  Punching and shaping 22-23 flowers for each one took a  LOT of time!  Next time...

I can't tell you how much I love our new Framelits!  They are perfect for this type of project where a punch can't get far enough in to cut the hole or it's not large enough.  I could cut a heart out right in the middle of the the Fancy Favor die cut. 

Next, I embossed the box with a Baroque Motifs stamp and gold embossing powder.  Then I adhered a window sheet behind the heart cut-out on the inside of the box.  I punched out the flowers and shaped them into a bowl shape by pressing them onto the end of a White Signo Gel Pen.  I put a dot of Dazzling Detail in the center of each flower and then quickly dipped it in the Galaxy Gold Glitter.  Then I adhered them around the heart opening with Mini Glue Dots and glued the 5 0 on the window sheet with Multi glue.  I put 50th Anniversary candies in a cello bag and tied a ribbon on and they were done.  Can't wait to see how everyone likes them!
